    This. They should, the game is supposed to be competitive and fun.
  • Pass backs are not a part of football so why are they part of fifa?
  • Having your whole team stand still watching a replay while the cloak is running down, that part of football too?

    Celebrations maybe but not the dam replays!

    Honestly to say that FIFA is realistic is a joke. It's as close as you can get with a game. There is way too much physics and algebra involved in players colliding and balls b ouncing that it's just not possible for ta game to recreate it seamlessly.

    Its good, but its not "real" in any way shape or form. Sadly, its become more of an arcade game than a simulator in the past few years. The fact that Division 8 is ridiculously competitive now is evidence of that.

    Handballs aren't a tactic though. Ultra d and ptb are legit tactics teams in real life use. If you want to play like that than why shouldn't you be able to? Just pass around and they'll eventually come out and make a mistake. If not then it'll end a draw lol it sucks but whatever

    It is what it is. A game. If you want a simulator go play Football Manager.

    Game mechanics will NEVER be a recreation of real life. . .its impossible for a person behind a desk to imagine all possible outcomes of every single scenario that can occur throughout a game.

    That's why we have stupid AI, nonsense deflections, pacey players who run like slugs. . .who knows. It is what it is. Lol.

    Don't take it out, even if it's the most stupid thing of all time as it's realistic. But, EA HAVE to make auto-defending less effective

    So judging from our gripes. . . it seems Frostbite was NOT the answer. . .lol.

    How are chemistry styles and attribute cards realistic? Fut is the least realistic game of all time lol it's less realistic than me regenerating health in cod

    PTB needs tweaking.

    It needs the striker to drop far deeper, make it extremely hard to get out of your half with it. It should be just for ultimate hanging on for a draw times.

    There shouldn't really that super long ball to 99 pace striker option on ALL of the time tbh.

    PTB and counter attacking should be nerfed. Part of the reason why PTB is so effective is that counter attacking is way too easy.
  • Should never have been in the game in the first place.

    I think they should at least limit how long you can use it, not using it the whole game like some people

    When it was introduced, we were promised it was for offline modes only. Jukez can confirm this.

    Even just using counter attack puts the dline way deep

    They need to balance it all! if people want to play defensive or park the bus to an extent fine but it shouldn't be as effective. It is well overdone, the fact that people can just sit defenders in the actual fkn box and not control them is a joke

    Where in my post does it mention Chemistry styles and attribute cards being realistic? I just said PTB is realistic. Watch teams like Burnley, San Marino, Sunderland and they PTB

    It doesn't I'm just saying just because it is realistic doesn't warrant it being in the game.

    Maybe if they added a shot clock that could make the defense want to come out and pressure to cause a turnover.

    It's not PTB, it's the ability to be effective with a counter from PTB that is the issue

    This and the fact that your opponent can put the controller down and let the team defend and be more effective than if he were manually defending. All you really need the controller for, is to lob through ball to the striker who somehow gets up the field immediately.

    This, i have paid attention a few times and from the typical corner counter (you know where it goes direct to their man to break) even on defensive i can get caught with only one back, can be hard enough even with 2 sometimes. If it is one of the games your AI doesn't want to perform good luck!

    It requires a ridiculous amount of effort for teams to ptb effectively, it's genuinely impressive how coordinated the defense is when it works. However more often then not they have major lapses and still lose, not only because they let in the goal, but because they hardly get a fraction of the chances that teams in FUT get. In FUT the defensive lapses really don't happen once you get 25 yards from the goal, you're putting most of if not all of your eggs into the long shot basket.
